Health Certificates


A Health Certificate is required by food manufacturers or exporters who wish to export food of animal origin to countries outside of the European Community.

These certificates confirm that a specific business complies with all relevant legislation and the food produced is without risk to health.

Health certificates will only be issued if:

  • The business is registered with us
  • Food Hygiene Standards are met
  • The food is produced or packed in the borough

For more information visit GOV.uk.
